     1 week after liposuction, swelling will be a significant factor.  Wait about 3 months before making an assessment.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Visible results after surgery

You are probably still very swollen from the surgery.  It is not terribly uncommon to not be able to see some results at this point.  Be patient.  You should be able to get a feel for your results at about 8-12 weeks after surgery.  You should see improvement gradually over the coming weeks.  Good luck!
